"In my first term I sang Al Green," the president said about his impromptu rendition of Green's "Let's Stay Together" in January. "In my second term, I'm going with Young Jeezy," Mr. Obama joked.
Then addressing his wife, Michelle Obama, he noted, "Michelle said, 'Yeah.' I sing that to her sometimes."
Jeezy reacted to the White House mention on Twitter, writing, "Shout out to @BarackObama." He added, "You know they love the snowman in the white house."
In 2008, Young Jeezy released the song "Mr. President" with rapper Nas. The track, which was recorded when Mr. Obama clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, made Rolling Stone's 100 Best Songs of 2008 list.
